“I think we were made for each other,” he could be heard saying on stage as the song “Can’t Get Enough Of Your Love Baby,” by Barry White, played in the background.

“I commend these kids,” said seasoned announcer Gene Price between acts. “With all this noise, they do a great job.”
Mr. Price has acted as the announcer for the family-friendly showcase for the past 12 years.
